I have never come across such a list in writing and to be quite honest, it was never outright stated to me that I can't write something (with one exception, that was a harsh comment about one of the columnists of the paper). I don't think there is a big orchestrated conspiracy to leave readers and citizens in the dark about certain things. This all works on a social level. The most of the editorial staffs are leftists, that's just a fact, there is actually a good book about why this is by the German journalist Jan Fleischhauer called "Unter Linken" ('Amongst leftists'). As you can imagine, it is hard to be "the new guy" and go on head to head confrontation with most of the colleagues. So while there are no "lists" it kind of comes "naturally" to you, if you don't want to raise a stir (and in most cases it's not worth to do so): Just follow the narrative.

Yes, there is pretty massive discussion going on whether or not to leave out which details. There are two main schools of thought right now. The first one is that nothing that can possibly incite racism, hate, etc. should ever be mentioned in a news story regardless of context. The second one is that you will mention any and every detail that is essential to understand the story. For example: In the context of an honor-killing where the brother murders his sister because she had a boyfriend the family didn't approve of, the heritage and beliefsystem of this family is problably essential for you to understand the context of the story. If it is i.e. "just" a normal robbery though, the heritage of the suspect isn't needed to tell what's happened. I hope that makes sense. I don't know of any influential reporter who wouldn't subscribe to either of these two "guidelines".

What is not publicly known about the inner workings of European MSM?

Hm. Well, that depends on what you would characterize as "publicly known". What you might not know: There is hardly any daily paper that is profitable right now and the ones that are, finance the reds during the week with their weekend editions. The whole market is in desperate need for a viable monetization method. A lot has been tried. Different forms of various paywalls, crowdfunding or "pay per article" - systems. The only newspaper I came across, which found an online-monetization method that really genuinely works for them is De Correspondent in the Netherlands.

Whoever comes up with a real solution to this can potentially make a buttload of money.
